Notes: Tim Shey's website: www.wallsofjericho.50megs.com. "High Plains Drifter" was written in ten days in January/February 2000; it came to 200 pages in long hand. It took three weeks (and three typewriters) to type the manuscript. Over the next year, 20 plus pages were edited out. In 2004 the typescript was scanned on a computer and put on a computer file. The total amount of time to complete the book was probably three months. In August 2008 "High Plains Drifter" was accepted for publication. "High Plains Drifter" was published in December of 2008. The title was taken from a Clint Eastwood film. Luke 9: 23-24. I Corinthians 2: 4-5: "And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of men's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."

Subject: Why did I read this?
Tedious log of twenty years hitching. There is good info here but....
From the story, "I didn't know what kind of reaction I would get from Kathleen. She shook her head and smiled at me. I kept thinking that this was some sort of miracle. I didn't write to her to tell her I was coming."
Tim, you went to her apartment door without even letting her know you were coming. So you see her on the sidewalk. That's not exactly a miracle. You were in her neighborhood.
Tim, it's twenty years later now and you are still blindly following this "holy ghost" that has you hitching back and forth across the plains. Twenty years. You've called out plenty of others, the church in Jackson for one. But I have seen you at the supper table greedily feeding and then you tell me that you are selfless. Maybe this "holy ghost" isn't as holy as you thought.
Okay Tim which is the key factor here for hitching, the cleanliness or the Lord? From the story, "I like to keep my hair short and my clothes clean. There were times when my clothes did get ragged, but eventually the Lord would provide through another person and I would get another pair of pants or a sweatshirt. The key to hitchhiking is having a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. He provides for His followers."
Tim, there are treatments for delusional disorder. Get yourself an SSDI check and rent a small apartment in your favorite Montana town. You're not getting any younger.
